Not very descriptive of what is going on.

Ok so, photo-bio reactor turns waste water and sunshine into algae, algae is dried by a filter tube / and filter screw that the water falls out of, while heated with solar (unknown sizing still), the solar drier will use a sterling engine as well, and also will require another focusing lens/ passive sun tracker to power the screw etc.

then the dry algae is collected in a hopper, and fed via another screw that is insulating, up another tube, through a zone that is heated to extreme temps by the large magnifying glass, this produces hydrogen and Carbon monoxide, through thermolysis/Gasification, this is then fed into a generator, I prefer a wave disk engine as they are more efficient then a internal combustion, without the high failure mode of a turbine(catastrophic

the exhausted water and Co2 are fed back into the bio reactor, along with waste water, starting the whole thing over again,

the idea here is all energy released is solar, and all proccessing power is solar, so there is no carbon sink, or exotic materials required, and no nasty chemicals, what goes in.... comes out.... and goes in...

Yeah I remember your description. I meant that model/drawing isn't very descriptive about what is going on. It shouldn't look like something from Farmville. :wink:

This was just to get a rough on paper, I still don't have heat loads and dimensions for anything, or even materials lists,

This is one of those "I will build it eventually type projects"
if you can build/design it first
have at it!

I just want good things to happen,
eventually if all or good dreams come true,
this world will not be such a nightmare....

In Israel, everyone has solar water heaters. You could probably use one as part of the machine.

I am a game designer, not a engineer :D
